clinton and president obama, vice president biden, vice president mondale were there. the speaker of the house, john boehner, spoke. mitch mcconnell spoke. jim mcdermott, congressman from seattle, spoke very movingly. it was a wonderful service. i loved tom foley and was proud of everything he did for our district in spokane. i love his wife, heather. they've been very, very close friends of mine. it was a wonderful ceremony. it honored him as a man of integrity, a man from our very small town of spokane who grew up to become an important figure on the international stage. it was wonderful. really wonderful. >> host: next call for kitty kelley, terry in brooklyn, new york. hello. >> caller: big fan of booktv. this truly has been the greatest "in depth" i've ever seen. you guys could easily do another three hours. ms. kelley, my wife thinks your neck piece is very, very beautiful.

it on the screen for those who have not seen it yet. you can see president obama armed with a 1980's mobile phone. secretary sebelius with hur fingers crossed and a tech guy with a floppy disk. my guess julie is folks at the white house are not laughing. how concerned are they about this rollout? not just the website but the whole deal. what is their biggest concern? >> that they are in this holding pattern. no one expects the website will be fixed over the next couple of days. november 30 seems like a fairly conservative estimate by some accounts. all we're seeing now is more website problems and more problems with the actual policy. if the conversation switches to the policy away from the website that becomes even more dangerous. there's nothing that they can say to refute that now because people can't log on to the website. they can't see what kind of payments they're going to be making. all they're having to deal with is criticism not just from republicans but democrats. >> a promise that wasn't a promise? >> they feel like that was maybe a risk they took at the time and now they're having to

colleagues during the questioning of medicare and medicaid chief marilyn tavenner. she is the first obama administration official to answer questions before congress over the flawed rollout of the website. >>> government spying is also big on the hill today. in about two hours, the house intel committee holds a hearing to demand answers about the nsa's surveillance programs and it comes as outrage is building over the revelations the nsa spied on our country's allies, including german chancellor angeina merkel. dianne feinstein is calling for a total review. president obama said he wouldn't confirm what he called assumptions made in the press but the nsa is involved in a whole range of issues. >> what we've seen over the last several years is their capacities continue to develop and expand and that's why i'm initiating now a review to make sure that what they're able to do doesn't necessarily mean what they should be doing. >> joining me right now republican congressman peter king of new york. he's a member of the homeland security committee and chairman of the subcommittee
told us that obama care is more than a website. i agree. it is more than just a website, and the problems run far deeper than a few technological glitches. >> the white house released a progress report on the website fix saying it is improving with users waiting less than a second for wages to load, compared to eight. they are work to go improve application process. wanda summers and ed o'keefe. good morning to you both. thanks for joining me. >> good to see you, alex. >> as the the house and senate negotiators met on tuesday, they are just waiting to reach a deal and we reach the debt ceiling february 7th. will it turn into another 11th hour fight? or might we get something done until we all talk about it minute by minute. >> it is congress. so the 11th hour seems to be when most things get done. what we have heard this week is this is not going to explode into some kind of a grand bargain as perhaps the white house. now, there's hope, it is likely this will be a piecemeal fix to avoid this, to perhaps deal with the across the board sequester cuts. not a lot of optimism
different than in terms of president george w. bush. >> the obama administration spied on at least 35 foreign governments according to "the wall street journal". they did not deny the spying. the white house said all spying tactics are under review. some have already been canceled like surveillance of german chancellor angela merkel's cellphone. it has infuriated he and severely damaged u.s. relations. a prominent newspaper said obama had known of the spying since 2010. he was informed personally that year. the administration denied that confrontation took place. the mess in europe is now spilling into some corners of congress. >> they don't believe ever listening to the head of state of an ally is appropriate. i would hope the president is as upset as all of us are in congress. >> reporter: some lawmakers say europe needs to grow up. >> if the french citizens knew exactly what that was about they would be applauding and popping champagne corks. it's a good thing. >> reporter: the white house promised merkel the surveillance canada. others want the same rules. >> senior correspondent
. if president obama did not know about this, that is normally what guys like in my business, what we call a conspiracy. and if it's a conspiracy, then somebody on capitol hill neat -- needs to get on their house and find out who was running a program like this against our leaders, leaders of another nation, and as monica said, this is phony nonsense with these leaders acting like they're all upset. everybody knows what is going on. but as joe wilson so eloquently put it, neil, in the state of union address, if the president of the it's now says he didn't know about it, then he is lying. >> here's one issue i'll raise with you. if the president is detached on these issues and allows this underlings to do this stuff you could read, if you're working for him, the boss is detached. we can go ahead and screw up the shop. >> that's no excuse. you're making an argument -- >> i'm not at all. if you provide the atmosphere, then everyone around you will run crazy all over you. >> that could be the casa, could well be the case. >> then he is grossly incompetent as the commander in chief and the chie
.s. capitol and the white house. but madison did turn it around and he became a much more decisive leader in the months immediately after that. he had been rather detached. it will be interesting to see what president obama does. if he follows madison's model and gets more engaged. >> yeah. madison made a personal contact changed the way history looked at him. thanks so much. >> thanks for having me. >> straight ahead on our show, and we have a lot more show, just when you that the the irs scandal could not get any worse, taxpayers, well, you're about to get the bill for all of that. and you know him best for his role as the psych on "l.a. law" and his next role, he's spreading a message of faith. actor corbin bernsen is here [ susan ] though he had never left. the end. lovely read susan. but isn't it time to turn the page on your cup of joe? gevalia, or a cup of johan, is like losing yourself in a great book. may i read something? yes, please. of course. a rich, never bitter taste cup after cup. net weight 340 grams.

report out that the white house has pressured insurance executives to keep quiet about the obama ca care rollout. >> there are a number of americans, fewer than 5% of americans who have got cut-rate plans that doesn't offer real financial protection in the event of a serious illness or an accident. remember, before the affordable care act, these bad apple insurers had free rein, every single year, to limit the care that you received or use minor preexisting conditions to add to your premiums or bankrupt you. >> david, it's good to have you back, good morning. >> thanks, carl, good to be with you. >> i want to talk about the quarter and conference call. the stock getting a lot of activity today. have you been asked to keep quiet about obama care in. >> we have not. we've been actively iengaged wih multiple years with the administration on both sides the aisle. we believe the make system needs to evolve, you need to improve affordability for all and improve health care quality for all. that's what we've been working toward. >> when he refers to "bad apple insurers," i wonder if you think h
for him politically. in a scandal. the obama care stuff. he's taking on a lot of weight right now politically. >> okay. joy, far from learning their lesson, today the senate gop used filibuster rules to block two of the president's nominees. one on housing, and the other appeals court judge nominee patricia millert, a woman even ted cruz has cited for her, i'm quoting mr. cruz, fine professional credentials. so i guess no matter the president nominated her, that's it, she's not going through. >> there's nothing that's going to do better for a party's brand that has trouble with african-americans and women than blocking the nomination of both an african-american and a woman, because that really sends a message, we care. and the nomination, bloc, is significant in something like that hasn't been done in 100 years. they're setting a new precedent in terms of obstruction, when harry reid came to a deal with mitch mcconnell they were going to put aside this obstruction and move things forward. it shows the republicans are completely and utterly tone deaf. all most americans will rememb
. you are the poll maven here at nbc, you and chuck. what do you think to the white house is most alarming. >> the president's numbers as you just pointed out. of course people's disgust with washington isn't something new, present the last four or five years. what's been notable how president obama has been able to float above that. his numbers have been higher than everyone else's. this poll is the first time we see the weight of all the stories that have been over the past month and a half. the government shutdown, the website's rollout on health care law, allegations of nsa spying have taken a weight on him and put his approval numbers at an all-time low. also as you just mentioned favorable, unfavorable first time, upside down in his presidency, in fact, the time we've been testing him in the poll. >> chris slice arcillizza, appr number down to 42%, bottoming into george bush territory, which was as low as 37 at this point in his presidency midterm. what are the implications for midterm. >> i'm working on this piece. a lot of democrats say who cares what his approval ratings
of the country like wisconsin. republican senator ron johnson, one of the most critical of president obama, his approval ratings have dropped to just 28% following his obstruction in washington. wisconsin fed up with johnson. but evidence in the polls hasn't stopped their governor from aiming for the white house. scott walker is grasping at straws for a presidential bid with a rewrite of his governing history in the state. walker's book titled "unintimidated" won't be released for weeks but the reports of inaccuracies between between the pages are already flooding in and making the rounds. walker's signature campaign pledge was to create 250,000 jobs in 4 years is notably absent from the story because walker's goal has fallen miserably short. walker leaves out his aide's criminal conviction in the john doe trial and shamelessly twists the outcome of his ongoing legal battle with the union-busting law. and walker's most glaring cover-up is his most serious. he chronicles the protests against his union-busting policies claiming he never considered infiltrating troublemakers amongst the peaceful d
political analyst with john us in a moment. but first grant lotus is here with more on what the white house hopes is a solution. >> the president is not messing around. he has hired engineers from three of the biggest and best attack companies in the world to help fix the obama care web site. >> bay area based oracle and google are joined by red hat--which is headquartered in north carolina. >> this comes after computer problems have been preventing people from signing up for government mandated health care insurance. >> even worse new concerns that the web site lacks of the security needed to protect the sensitive information of people looking for insurance. the obamas administration says the website will be running smoothly by the end of november. >> thousands of californians are reportedly getting letters saying their current insurance policies are being counseled, under obamas care. david beat nick has of one woman's story. airline " >> in the past couple of months care has sent out 75,000 notations notifications. what consumer advocates say these were a joke policies that did not costa
's pick to lead a federal housing agency. he's a respected member of congress who has the support from the business community. but to republicans, blocking these two appointments are just another way to try to hurt president obama. we've seen it again and again on issue after issue. with this republican party, they have such antipathy for this president and his agenda, they root for his failure. even if it's bad for the country. they'll do everything. even mistake the facts. here's what gop leaders said this week about government spending. >> this debt, it weighs on our economy today. we're not doing much about it. >> our country is on an unsustainable fiscal course. >> we have had record deficits. >> record deficits for the past five years? the senator conveniently left out some major information. under president obama, deficits have gone down five straight years. the fastest drop since world war ii. down $409 billion since 2012. republicans are quiet about that, but they're still making stuff up about health care. >> what i want is the finest possible health care for america that we
'll jump in there. dealing with criticism of course, the obama administration from overseas about spying on friends in particular the german chancellor angela merkel, when we're looking at the domestic angle, are they going to look at that, as well? >> well, michael, the white house has said they're taking a look. they're going to review all of these programs and to see what they need to do, whether or not what the nsa is doing is necessary versus what they're doing just because they can. now, we dote note whether at the end of this review they're going to announce anything publicly about some of these collections. last night, at a an event in baltimore, the head of the nsa, general keith alexander, suggested that you know, maybe the usefulness of some of this collection on world leaders might not be as valuable as the relationships with these countries. for instance, if it's ever found out you know, it might damage diplomatic releases to such an extent that maybe pab you know, doing all of this behind closed doors is not worth it. so you know, we'll see perhap what this turns out. but a
is concerned that president obama will cave on the social security consumer price index. it would definitely be a cut in benefits. this they have put the white house on notice that they are not going along with that and just reminding him he just got re-elected. they don't want to go to the polls in 2014 where you have to have the base show up and say, yeah, we just cut social security benefits. i don't think that is -- that's why there will be no grand bargain reached early next year. >> how about on the right when you stalk about potential tax cuts? what about corporate loopholes. >> corporate loopholes, but republicans are saying, listen, we are open for some taxes, but if are you going to raise taxes in one area you have to cut them in another. it has to be revenue neutral. that's the issue with tax reform which is a heavy lift, but republicans and a few democrats are working on the tax reform. that's the rub of whether you take the revenue and reduce the deficit or make it revenue neutral. >> we need something to be done, but we will believe it when we see it. >> kick the can down the r

blame president obama, he's not responsible for that. stuart: you've got to blame the private insurers not just emanuel saying that. here is the white house advisor trying to explain why millions will lose their current health plans. >> if you have a plan before obamacare, you can keep that. if your plan is downgraded or cancelled, you can't. stuart: pure spin. plans are canceled by the million because obamacare makes them illegal. fox news reporting that 3.7 million people have lost coverage so far. in the next hour, by the way, congressman fred upton will join us and we'll bring you a story of one cancer patient who is happy with their insurance, kept for years and she can't keep it or her doctor. that's 10:00 this morning. don't worry, we're firmly focused on your money. we'll take you to wall street to see, just watch your money grow this monday morning, yes, there's going to be a rally and stocks are going up again, except for blackberry, it's tanking and the reason for that. it's a big week, sebelius hearings, the jobs report, we've got it all, but first, here is this. is footbal
since the great depression. our banks were on the bridge, our housing market was in trouble and our auto industry was sliding toward the abyss. in fact, in the months before president obama was sworn into office, we were shedding roughly 800,000 jobs a month, and our economy was shrinking at an 8.3% annual rate. there was real concern that the united states economy would not bounce back. but it did, thanks to the tenacity of the american people, the determination of the private sector, and the bold, decisive actions taken across government. right away the president moved to pull our economy out of the recession. he worked to put out the financial fires, stabilize the automakers, and jump start growth. in addition he pursued policies to fuel our economy into the future. that meant investing in education and infrastructure, fixing a health care system that was broken, creating new rules so our financial system works better for consumers, and investors, and locking in lower taxes for 98% of all americans. and lowering barriers so entrepreneurs and businesses can innovate, grow, and hire. be

passed some of democratic control of both houses. even florida supposedly controversial law passed the state senate unanimously. when illinois strengthened its long-standing law in 2004 state senator barack obama cosponsored the bill that was unanimously approved. conversely many so-called red states oppose a duty to retreat and even more restrictive states courts have held that retreat is required when preventing serious crime. indeed it's universal crucible that a person can use force when she reasonably believes is necessary to defend defend against a minute use of unlawful force. where there is no duty to retreat she is further justified in using deadly force if she recently believes it's necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm. it's not an easy defense to assert and it certainly doesn't mean you can shoot first and ask questions later. these laws aren't a license to be a vigilante or behave recklessly. they protect law-abiding citizens. that is why this debate is emma. in ancient britain a duty to retreat refused -- by which the king under duty of us protection to the
